In this two-week training program for ages 8-13, a group of professional actors will lead your kids through an exciting exploration of what it's like to perform Shakespeare live!
Give your kids a chance to experience Shakespeare as a living, breathing art form, completely relevant to our lives today, meant to be performed on stage in front of an audience — rather than a dusty set of confusing words in a book they're forced to read in school.
ISC actors are always besieged by kids after a show. Let your kids become part of the excitement!
Your kids will learn:
In addition, they'll get a great behind-the-scenes look at the preparations for ISC's summer productions.
And the best part is: at the end of the class, your kids will get to perform a selection of Shakespeare scenes chosen just for them — on the ISC stage at Cornell Plantations, in front of the ISC's audience, during the first weekend of ISC's summer shows!
This will be a unique opportunity for your kids to learn about Shakespeare in an active, exciting way, from a group of professional actors who are doing it for real.
